Science is a perennial journey to the frontiers of knowledge, where transformations of life and society begin. This month we venture from the quark to the black hole, with plenty of surprises on Earth along the way, to spotlight head-spinning research and experiments.
We start with a vision of city life that just last year may have seemed utopian. But the pandemic has shown us urban life can be more flexible than imagined—and a model for a bountiful future.
We also give the stage to Jeremy England, a young physicist who is rewriting the conception of life’s origins. Some say England is the Darwin of the 21st century. We say he is just the kind of scientist you will meet throughout this month’s issue of Nautilus.
